DVLuca on Coming of the storm

SirSh4ggy thanks for all of those suggestions. As you mentioned its not a pure focused storm deck, but a combo-storm. The main plan is a combo: Jeskai Ascendancy, cast Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and make it letal or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa, attack, and post-blokers make it /; or again Natural Affinity / (preferably)Sylvan Awakening and make them big enough (there I dont necessarily need jeskay), after and/or otherwise, I'll star the storm part with Grapeshot and eventually support with Mizzix's Mastery. I'll keep Aetherflux Reservoir and Mind's Desire in check especially reservoir, I play in 1vs1 but in a very competitive and aggressive meta. Rude Awakening was replaced by Sylvan Awakening, is already too high to pay.

This isn't really a storm deck. It's a quasi-storm combo deck that relies on creature swarm for a win-condition. If you want to go full on storm you definitely need cards like Aetherflux Reservoir, Mind's Desire, and Ignite Memories. Those are all excellent storm win conditions.

Other attributes of a storm deck help you renew your hand so you can keep casting spells. Reforge the Soul, Wheel of Fate, and Windfall are all affordable.

You'll also want to untap your lands repeatedly so you can keep casting. Add in Rude Awakening and Turnabout.

If you're trying to do storm, you need to go all in. Otherwise, if you're doing a true combo-deck, drop the storm aspects to make it more focused.

Hey, with Aetherflux Reservoir being a card Tendrils of Agony has become very sub par. You already have Mind's Desire and reservoir as outs for going infinite having Tendrils of Agony as well seems like too much and its much harder to kill anyone without going infinite than it is with Aetherflux Reservoir. Also Think really hard about what Paradox Engine actually adds for your deck. I found that it makes way more mana than I ever need and doesnt win the game while putting a giant target on yourself.

I'm with Catbeard, the land count seems pretty low. Maybe run some utility lands to offset the number of rocks, so even if you're flooding you don't necessarily hate drawing them, examples: Academy Ruins, Arch of Orazca, Arcane Lighthouse,Blighted Cataract, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls if you already own one, those are pricey, Command Beacon, Desolate Lighthouse, you get the idea. If I were you I'd take out Flusterstorm and maybe Spell Swindle for more versatile and easier to cast counterspell package like Arcane Denial and maybe Negate. It allows you to use your turn better without needing to hold up 5 mana, and also lets you counter more things than Flusterstorm. And stuff like Search for azcanta seems good, scrying in general. And if you're looking to do lots of cantripping with cheap artifacts, Mind's Desire, or Haze of Rage might be pretty sweet payoffs. and if you fill up your hand, maybe Stormbreath Dragon?

Cut Chalice of the Void and one of your vapour cards.

Add Storm the Vault Mind's Desire

Consider some annoying buyback or storm spells. and move Lab Man into the main.

Awesome muht1234, glad some of my suggestions helped.

Out of interest, which site does your group use to evaluate deck prices? Our budget pods used to use deckstats.net, but they've changed from a market price, to a checkout cart (price based on what's in inventory for sale). We were looking for somewhere else to value the decks but couldn't find anything so we opted to re-comply all our decks in the new deckstats.net pricing model.

The reason we don't use tappedout is because, even looking at your deck, it says $74.43 but that is excluding 7 cards, Firemind's Foresight, Goblin Electromancer, Mind's Desire, Swiftwater Cliffs, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Temporal Fissure, Volcanic Vision. Really silly IMHO.

Out of interest, your well under the $100 now Deckstats.net price on deckstats.net.

Don't know if you noticed, tappedout says your at 101 cards, you'll need to remove 1 to get down to 100 cards.

Also, since you don't have a budgetary issue anymore, I would add back Cyclonic Rift since it has quite high play value when overloaded, or add the Mystic Confluence back for the modular and draw. Will still be well under budget and get the benefits of the extra power as well.

Cheers.

Baral, Chief of Compliance looks like a possible include. Ethereal Usher can transmute into Mind's Desire or Muddle the Mixture for Grape Shot. Inspiring Statuary may be useful to cast larger non artifact spells. Isochron Scepter seems like a go to include in a Paradox Engine deck. Words of Wind can potentially net you mana off fast mana or just board wipe every turn. Special mentions to Baral's Expertise Solemn Simulacrum and Thoughts of Ruin

My favorite combo is an extended one. A friend had a Heartbeat Desire - a ramp-control deck that comboed off with Heartbeat of Spring, Early Harvest and a large storm count Mind's Desire. Plus, it has the best poetic deckname.

As others have noted, a format that is not curated by the DCI is doomed to fail.

Brawl in MTGO is 95% Baral decks. Pauper has exploded in popularity, but blue is overrepresented and monarch mechanic is proving too powerful in the format. Not a peep so far on that by Wizards and we have months to the next B&R.

A similar thing had happened to extended, but Extended 2.0 can learn from those mistakes. I think a trial for extended is in order.
